Slow Down And Live - Annapolis Acupuncture

Carol Burke practices human and animal acupuncture in Annapolis, MD.


Originally trained in allopathic medicine, Carol worked many years in adult clinical care as a nurse practitioner.


She sought a deeper understanding of health and illness by studying mind-body touch therapies with internationally known teachers. She is certified in Process Acupressure, Zero Balancing, Acupuncture Detoxification, and has completed the Advanced Training in CranioSacral Therapy with Dr. John Upledger.


In January 2006, Carol opened her own practice as a licensed acupuncturist in West Annapolis. A year or two later she received her certification as an animal acupuncturist. Her animal practice focuses on dog acupuncture.


In her practice, Carol offers a unique integration of Five Element Acupuncture with healing touch therapies. A life-long learner, she brings a serene presence and grace to the treatment room and offers patients compassionate listening and hope. With her abiding interest in spiritual growth, Carol’s work has helped many open to their full potential for health and inner balance.


For the recent six years, Carol has studied many weekends in NYC under Jeffrey Yuen, an internationally recognized master of Chinese Medicine and a Daoist Priest. She completed a two year course in advanced acupuncture, a year course in healing with gems and stones, a year course in Chinese dietary therapy, and a year course in Chinese medical aromatherapy (essential oils).


Carol is the former director of education at the Baltimore School of Massage, a former nurse practitioner for the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), and a former instructor to medical students in the Complementary Medicine Program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.


A graduate of the Maryland University of Integrative Health, Carol is Nationally Board Certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).


Carol believes laughter is the best medicine and that hugs and animals are healing. Her interests include learning, travel, painting, poetry, and Jungian dream work. She lives with her artist husband, Damian Jones, and their dog, Skipper Malone, in Epping Forrest.




Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.




People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.
